Chris Froome has tested positive. A sample from the Vuelta a Espana was found to contain double the legal limit of the asthma drug Salbutamol. What does this mean for Froome? What exactly is Salbutamol? What does it do? Caley Fretz and Shane Stokes dig into the breaking news. 

In this episode, your hosts chat with Peter Flax about his recent feature on American racing mainstay Bill Elliston, then call up Enve and Mavic to ask them about safety concerns with carbon clincher wheels. Finally, after eight positive tests at the Vuelta a Colombia, can we trust the best performances of Colombian cycling? Klaus Bellon, a writer born in Bogota and now living in the U.S., gives us a reason to believe.

    Great podcast guys. As an engineer who uses composites for structures I really enjoyed the carbon clincher discussion. The recognition of the difficulty there is in replicating real world loading on components in a lab test scenario was only touched on. This is the most problematic part in answering are my wheels going to explode. In Construction there are well defined systems and guidelines in place based on statistical evidence collated from multiple sources. Certainly a categorisation of wheel robustness would be useful for the consumers. Keep up the good work.
